Environmental Sustainability in Clinical/Rehabilitation Engineering
This interactive, online even aims to explore via a variety of case studies and round table discussion how actions can help towards reducing carbon footprints in Clinical Engineering through various methods, including training and education.
Organised by IPEM's Environmental Sustainability Commitee
Climate change, health and healthcare are inextricably linked. Even at the current 1.1 C rise in global surface temperature, we are witnessing rapid increases in heat-related deaths and in the spread of certain infectious diseases. Healthcare services, including the NHS, recognise the urgent need to reduce their carbon footprint but delivering this is challenging.
This interactive event will explore how actions at multiple levels can help clinical engineering and other teams to quantify and reduce their carbon footprint. The session will have Case Studies highlighting sustainable education and training practices and illustrate how clinical engineering teams can work with surgical, anaesthetic and sustainability teams to reduce waste and climate-damaging gases.
The programme for the morning also includes an introduction to AXREM and their Sustainability Agenda, and a Roundtable discussion on Opportunities and Collaboration with Gary McAllister, Chief Technology officer, One London – NHS London; Luke Readman, Director of Information, NHS England; and Chris Taylor, Service Delivery Manager/ Sustainability Champion, Philips HC/ AXREM.
